About the area

According to U.S.News World Report 1997 Venice has been chosen as the only city in Florida to be in the top ten of the most beautiful and best places in the U.S.! This gorgeous Venice is a wonderful blend of Mediterranean architecture, coupled with a unique tropical atmosphere. This beautiful, small and friendly city, the only town on the east coast, which lies directly on the Gulf of Mexico and disposes of miles and miles of beautiful sandy beaches. Venice is central to countless attractions. -Visit the Venice festivals -Have fun at Busch Gardens in Tampa or at Disney World in Orlando -Take a trip to the Ringling Museum in Sarasota or the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg -Explore the Everglades in the South -Go shopping in the Designer Ellen-ton Premium Outlet All of this and much more is in easy driving distance! Venice is the idea location for many excursions. Our guests are provided with 5 brand bicycles (4 adults,1 child) with which to enjoy the parks' paved bicycle paths, stretching for miles alongside the inland waterway. Venice is famous for the fossilized shark's teeth that can be found on the beaches. We have 5 beaches near by - less than 10 car minutes away. One, the South Venice Beach is made up of a small stretch of seven miles of land, which can only be reached by ferry or boat-the family ferry pass is provided for our guest. As well there are three privately owned golf courses (Bird Bay, Capri Isles, and Waterford), and the Shamrock Park & Nature Center, which is free for visitors and houses basketball and tennis courts, a one mile hiking trail, and even a playground for the kids. More central to South Venice Beach is also a small strip of stores for a wonderful afternoon of shopping or a café lunch. Golfers come from all around our award-winning golf courses to play. At best, however, that even in high season the beaches are still empty. In the vicinity of the Casperson Beach is also a golf course and a nature park with a fitness and fishing and a playground. Restaurants, grocery stores, shopping centers, restaurants, cinemas, doctors and hospitals, banks, library and much more are also within a few minutes for you to reach. And beyond that, there is the beach also has a restaurant with a Tikki bar with music and dance that invites you to linger.

“Pleasently Delighful”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2017

We were pleasantly surprised on the condition of the rental. We had rented other houses for February,but this one was quite clean and in great shape when we got there. We were met by Gerty who took time to show us where everything was. There were some minor problems, but she informed us when they would be fixed during our stay. One thing that we were impressed about Gerty was that she gave us the first option on renting the house for next year. As soon as she asked the question, we both said YES.

Owner's reply: Dear Dave, Thank you so much for your great review! You are wonderful renters! I'm so happy to have you back in 2018! Big hug Gerty

“Dream House”

Reviewed 30 May 2016

We stayed in Venice and Gertys House during the first week of May and it was beyond beautiful. The house was super clean and it had everything you need for a dream vacation, even toys for our 2 kids. The little Ferry just minutes away from the house, that brings you to a private Beach is fantastic. Gerty is the best Host and very helpful with questions. We were so amazed that we already booked our stay for next year. Cant wait to come back.

Owner's reply: Dear Franziska, Thank you so much for your outstanding review! I'm looking forward to seeing you next year again! Best wishes Gerty

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Robert B. from Switzerland stayed in April 2016 for 3 weeks and wrote:

This is a good location close to the beach in a quiet en green neighborhood; with access to a nearby private beach using a small ferry. The interior is uncluttered, very modern, easy to live in: A big living room and well equipped kitchen. Two large and comfortable bedrooms, each with bathroom and separate storage room; cable TV and Wifi. Bikes, strand chairs, etc available in the garage. The terrace and pool are spacious and great for a party. Friendly and efficient check-in/-out, house was very clean. The neighbor across the road waters the garden and is around for advice. Downtown Venice is only a few km away, and its central park with shops is a great area for shopping and dining. Within one mile of the house there are plenty of shops and restaurants. We had a very pleasant stay there, and recommend this property.
